Tara Reid not cut from Sharknado sequel

July 29th, 2013 8:40pm EDT

Tara Reid The producer of TV movie phenomenon Sharknado has dismissed reports suggesting Tara Reid will be axed from the sequel.

David Latt tells The Hollywood Reporter that he's hoping to net all the stars from the original for the disaster film follow-up, and he insists that rumours about Reid's character being snubbed are not true.

The American Pie star played leading man Ian Ziering's estranged wife in the bizarre project, about a violent storm which rains killer sharks onto Los Angeles, which took America by storm when it aired on the Syfy channel earlier this month (Jul13).

Bosses at the network are now working on a second film and Latt says, "Tara is invited back. Honestly, I don't know where that (story) came from.

"Hopefully she'll be the one turning us down because this bizarre film gives her - and the rest of the cast - some great opportunities... Despite all of the rumours and tabloid stories, Tara was great to work with. She showed up to play. Knew her lines. Was into this crazy, silly film. No drama. No diva... She was great and we would be lucky to have her in S2."

Meanwhile, Reid has weighed in on the drama, tweeting, "There is no script for Sharknado 2 until I read it then I will make a decision but everyone that is saying I got cut that is not true (sic)."
